A pigeon chilling at the water’s edge in a canal in Singapore had to get itself out after a monitor lizard crawled after it and took a wild bite.
Steven Sim Kok Leong captured a video of the Sir David Attenborough moment in the wild and posted it on the Singapore Wildlife Sightings Facebook page.
The pigeon, which looked like it was the bottom dweller, was aware enough of the situation at the time to sense the presence of a large reptile sneaking behind it.
The bird tilted its head to one side and its googly eyes saw the incoming predator.
In an instant it took a few steps to the right before flying away.
The monitor lizard didn’t stand a chance and barely came close to inflicting damage.
The reptile then slid backwards into the water to find its way to another meal.
Outside the camera, the person filming could be heard chuckling.
Monitor lizards are known to consume carrion and prey on live animals.
